Certificate of Origin

A document stating the country in which a product was manufactured. Many countries require certificates of origin as part of the paperwork necessary for importing goods. This is because most nations give certain other nations preferential or detrimental treatment with regard to trade. That is, it may charge no or very low tariffs on some countries while charging very high tariffs on others. A certificate of origin lets customs agents know what fees are applicable to a given shipment of goods.

certificate of origin

a document used to authenticate the country of origin of internationally traded goods. Most trading countries are prepared to accept certificates of origin issued by government departments of their trade partners or their appointees (CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE in the UK). However, complications as to their precise country of origin often arise in the case of goods which are assembled in one country using components which are in the main imported from other countries.
